Goto Year:2011 |
§ 73.691 Visual modulation monitoring.
(a) Each TV station must have measuring equipment for determining that
the transmitted visual signal conforms to the provisions of this
subpart. The licensee shall decide the monitoring and measurement
methods or procedures for indicating and controlling the visual signal.
(b) In the event technical problems make it impossible to operate in
accordance with the timing and carrier level tolerance requirements of
§ 73.682 (a)(9)(i), (a)(9)(ii), (a)(12), (a)(13), and (a)(17), a TV
broadcast station may operate at variance for a period of not more than
30 days without specific authority from the FCC: provided that, the
date and time of the initial out-of-tolerance condition has been
entered in the station log. If the operation at variance will exceed 10
consecutive days, a notification must be sent to the FCC in Washington,
D.C., not later than the 10th day of such operation. In the event
normal operation is resumed prior to the end of the 30 day period, the
licensee must notify the FCC upon restoration of normal operation. If
causes beyond the control of the licensee prevent restoration of normal
operation within 30 days, a written request must be made to the FCC in
Washington, D.C., no later than the 30th day for such additional time
as may be necessary.
